Just a post...

We had a beautiful day today. The sun was warm so after preeschool we stayed outside to ride the bike and play soccer. Here are the kids while playing:

The mulan magnolia today:

Our new home

I don't even know where to start... we are really behind with writning. I promised that I would post some pictures of our new home, well, here it is from the outside:

The house from the gate

The gate and part pf the garden with the pomegranate tree
(you can still se some fruit on it from last fall)

The other part of the garden

Mulan magnolia

This mulan magnolia is the jewel of the garden Its beauty comes from the big flowers - white, pink or bordeau - that appear at the coming of the spring before the leaves. Even if I love the hyacints and tulips I can't deny that this tree is even more beautiful. You can read more about it here. I will try to take pictures of it regularly so I can share with you how spirng arrives to Vigardolo.
Two pictures of the tree as of today:

Of course not only the plants are waking up with the feeling of warmth...there are other creatures around (this picture is here for Freeman Bird!!!):
